AbstractFire detection systems are an essential element of fire protection systems of road tunnels. Fire detectors should provide early warning of a fire incident at its initial stage, identify its location and monitor fire development in tunnels. Their role is crucial in preventing smoke spread in the tunnel, to controlling/extinguishing fires, and to aid in directing evacuation and firefighting operations.
